Passionate Care recognizes that many healthcare workers do not know how to get help for themselves or do not even have time or energy to find help. Now, frontline workers can get the report, entitled “Overcoming Anxiety”, which can help them realize how they can turn off anxiety to sleep well and wake up fresh.
Healthcare workers have demanding jobs even under the best conditions. During this pandemic, though, their jobs have involved longer hours and more uncertainty about their own safety, with burnout happening more often.
Passionate Care explains that the public has often cheered frontline workers as heroes who tried to save or comfort Covid-19 patients, but that the public was not aware of the emotional toll on the mental health of these workers.
As the Covid-19 pandemic goes into the third year of challenging doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers, these professionals continue to care for patients despite being exhausted, risking infection, and losing many to the disease.
With the emotional toll placed on health professionals, the result has sometimes been anxiety, depression, PTSD, and panic attacks.
The CDC’s “Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report” recently reported the prevalence of depression at 32%, anxiety at 30.3%, PTSD at 36.8%, and suicidal thoughts at 8.4%.
As explained on the Passionate Care website, the most important thing that healthcare workers suffering from mental health issues can do is to ask for help before their situation gets out of control.
